Photographer's Note


Let me see!

In our industrial countries technology has been developed and improved so quick that if we don’t follow up in six months, our knowledge could be outdated. Computer, digital photography, cellular phone… And we see such speed as normality.

In the same world, things are different. Minority people in Sa Pa, Vietnam rarely come to their nearest city Lao Cai just 20 miles away. They don’t have ID cards. They never hear about credit card. Passport, visa, satellite, travel are terms as strange as solar system, orbit, nuclear to them. Arriving here, you will witness how large is the gap between our civilization and their society…

Here an international photographer let the Dzay minority girls of Ta Van tribe to see how their faces appear on the LCD of his camera. Without the digital tech, these people continue to be photographed but never have a chance to see themselves, except on mirror.
